Built in 1897 by textile industrialist Walter L. Holt, the Colonial Revival style of the Holt-Harrison helped seat the standard for dwelling built in Haymount, an upscale suburb of Fayetteville. Holt helped establish four textile mills in Fayetteville, which contributed to a period of great local prosperity at the turn of the century. Jesse Harrison, former mayor of Fayetteville, would later become an owner of the home. The Holt-Harrison House has more recently been used for commercial purposes.

The Taylor Utley House stands on property originally owned by Captain James Andrew Jackson Bradford, former commander of the U.S. Arsenal located in Fayetteville. In 1847, William Taylor, a local merchant, purchased three-and-a half acres from Bradford and built his family's home there. Eleven years later, Joseph Utley purchased the house and a lot adjacent to it form Taylor for $3,000. This home typifies the vernacular Greek Revival-styling prevalent in home built in Fayetteville before the Civil War. (information source: visitfayettevillenc.com)
